FGM Nexus Siege

Nexus Siege mode

Nexus Siege is a Featured Game Mode for League of Legends.[1]


Nexus Siege cuts the Rift in half, leaving just one base to raze/protect. If you’re on the attack, blitz the base, shove waves, and deploy siege weapons to charge up your minions and destructify towers. When defending, break out tower upgrades and hold the line at all costs. Once the attackers crack the Nexus, teams switch sides. Victory goes to whichever team flattens the base fastest when attacking.

Stat bonuses

Both team have a variety of teleport pads to warp out to from fountain. Use the Siege Warp trinket to get into battle faster!

The attacking team has 1.5% increased AD, AP and max HP. This bonus increases over time.

Gold & EXP are normalised for Nexus Siege across both teams. This means don't worry about last-hitting, just push those minions as fast as you can!


The Defense team is rewarded everytime they manage to safely escort and push a minion into one of the Attacking team's fountains. If they can push 15 total minions up there, they trigger the Obliterator laser.

The Obliterator will kill all enemies in all lanes. This is also a great lane reset for the Defending team, buying them precious extra minutes to stall.

Siege Weapons

Crystal Shards

Siege weapons fill summoner spell slots. Snatch them up with an alternate currency called Crystal Shards (CR). Each side earns this kind of CR a little differently:


  • Earned over time
  • Kill enemy champions; attacker kills net more Crystal Shards than defender kills


  • Earned over time
  • Kill enemy champions
  • Granted when the first tower in each lane is destroyed
  • Earned for each minion shoved into the attacker’s teleporters
  • Defenders start the round with enough Crystal Shards to buy a siege weapon


All Siege Weapons use the Summoner Spell slot and are cast or deployed similar to Summoner Spells. You can carry up to two different Siege Weapons at once, and they do not stack in your Summoner Spell inventory (one at a time).
